Clashes erupted Wednesday between Palestinian residents and ultra-Orthodox Jews in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem.

A Palestinian woman and child were hurt in the incident and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

About 20 ultra-Orthodox Jews arrived to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim at one of the houses in the neighborhood.

According to Palestinians, the ultra-Orthodox group began harassing them, which led to a confrontation that was dispersed by police with clubs and tear gas.
